Ayurveda is divided in eight branches, which are carefully chiseled out to meet specific needs in the process of maintaining health and preventing diseases. Vajikarana is one of the eight branches which deals with all types of physical, and psychological sexual problems like impotence, libido, poor erection and early ejaculation in males and sterility, frigidity in females. Ayurveda strongly believed that a weak shukra dhatu was the culprit behind all male and female sexual problems. Vajikaran tantra (technique) claims that it has tips for a normal, healthy and mature shukra dhatu, which is ultimately essential for satisfying and productive sex.
The treatment adopted in ayurveda to increase libido, quality and quantity of semen, duration of erection and to treat infertility effectively is known as VAAJIKARANA.
As this therapy increases the strength of a man to perform sexual act, like a horse, it is called 'Vaajikarana'. ( 'Vaaji'=Horse.)
This means "The person who takes virility therapy after rejuvenation therapy gets offspring. Through these offspring he gains the happiness."
Ayurveda has laid much importance on a male's potency. Charaka states the use of aphrodisiacs as mentioned in ayurvedic therapies enhances one's potence by leaps and bounds. These medicines are said to give one the strength and potency of a horse. They are said to increase libido, duration of hard erection ,sperm count and sperm motility.
Vajikaran therapy leads to-
- Good strength.
- Potency to produce offspring.
- Increased span of erection.
- - Age group (between 16 to 70 years)
- - Importance (with the exception of hereditary or traumatic impotence.)
- - Frequent indulgence in sex.
- - Shukra Kshay (oligo spermia)
- - Dhanavan (rich).
- - Before 16 years and after 70 years of age.
- - Duratma (evil minded people)
- - Traumatic and hereditary impotence
Stree (female) is the greatest of all the vajikaran Dravya as said by charakh. Before vajikaran, pancha karma therapy is advised. Vajikaran is good for health and influence mental health also and psyche (mind) is considered as the origin of momentum for sexual desire.
Vajikaran thus deals not only with modes of increasing sexual vigor but also psychosomatic disorders.
